Preseason Top 100 List

After watching hundreds of player films these rankings are who I project to be the best players at the collegiate level for the class of 2017 in Illinois. I will be releasing the top players periodically leading up to kickoff of the 2017 Illinois High School football season.

Please Note: There will be another set of rankings for this class. These rankings are also subject to change.
